Caphosol® Versus State-of-the-art Mouthcare in Patients With Allogeneic Stem Cell Transplantation: a Randomized Controlled Study About the Efficacy of the Mouth Rinse Caphosol®
Randomized controlled study about the efficacy of the mouth rinse Caphosol in patients with allogeneic stem cell transplantation. 85% of the patients receive a severe oral mucositis due to their treatment.
70 patients will be randomized in the intervention (Caphosol) or in the standard (state-of-the-art) group. Primary endpoint is the duration of the mucositis, secondary endpoints are the occurence of oral mucositis measured with the WHO-scale and the occurence of pain measured with the NRS-scale (Numeric Rating Scale).
- Trial with medical device
|Study Design:||Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Supportive Care
- Duration of oral mucositis [ Time Frame: 20-30 days ]
|Study Start Date:||January 2013|
|Study Completion Date:||August 2014|
|Primary Completion Date:||August 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
|No Intervention: State-of-the-art mouth care|
Active Comparator: Mouth rinse Caphosol
Mouth rinse,aqueous solution. Caphosol is a preparation comprising two separately packaged aqueous solutions, a phosphate solution and a calcium solution, which, when both solutions are combined in equal volumes, forms a solution supersaturated with respect to both calcium and phosphate ions.
